Yosemite High School graduate (2005) Eric Demeusy won an Emmy this year for his work on the title sequence for a Netflix show Stranger Things at the 69th Creative Arts Emmy Awards held in September at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Last year, he was nominated for an Emmy for Marvels Jessica Jones title sequence.

While attending Yosemite High, Demeusy completed two 20 minute Star Wars fan films, earning him a summer internship at Fresno’s ABC Chanel 30. After graduating he relocated to Los Angeles to study directing at the New York Film Academy in Burbank.

His editing and animation skills led him to work on music videos for Kanye West and Sammy Hagar.

Demeusy quickly began working for creative studios such as Prologue, Imaginary Forces, Elastic and A52 where he worked on the Emmy winning title sequence for HBO’s Game of Thrones.

His work can also be seen in Disney’s Tron Legacy, Guillermo del Toro’s monster epic Pacific Rim, and the Netflix Original Series Stranger Things.

His short films have premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival and the Raindance Film Festival in London. His short film Star Wars: The New Republic Anthology, was featured on the front page of Yahoo and Entertainment weekly with over a million views online, garnering him attention from major Hollywood studios.

He’s currently in production on Proximity, a sci-fi drama about a man who’s world turns upside down after an encounter with extra terrestrials. He is also working on his own feature length movie.

He is the son of Karen and Mike Demeusy, and has three brothers, Michael, Ryan, and Justin, all of Oakhurst.

“It’s funny now, but Eric actually got kicked out of video class in high school,” Karen said with a smile.
